My wife and I visited some family up in Corning a little over a week ago. We met up with some friends in Napa on the way up to do a little wine tasting and have dinner. It was not quite spring there, but Napa is always beautiful. I only took nine pictures while we were there (can you believe it?)

Here are four of my favorite...

Newly designed website!

The freshly updated website is up! If you have any suggestions or comments, please let me know. There are quite a few things I will be working on refining over the next couple of weeks. Who am I kidding, I will always be refining it!

Brian Black Photography is about to embark on new territory in Colorado and I can't wait to meet everyone out there. I will still be servicing Southern California and anywhere else for that matter!

There are exciting times ahead.


Ember - The Swimmer

So my golden retriever Ember loves to swim. It has been rainy the past couple days, but today the sun was out and we decided to let her have some fun in the pool - we're having her fixed next week (shhh - don't tell her!).

She loves to just jump right in the water and swim. I decided to try and get a few shots of her playing around. She certainly is a ball of energy.

She's in there somewhere, I promise!

She decided to get Loriann wet. What you don't see is Loriann holding her laptop as far away as she can!

Up close and personal!

She really is a beautiful animal!

At this point she is worn out!

Las Vegas Recap and Colorado Update

Well, the trip to Vegas proved to be less productive than expected. I had this silly problem with my heart and was in the hospital for 2 out of the 3 days of the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers) conference. I did get to go see Jessica Claire's talk. She really knows what she is talking about. She also has a couple very cool products. Check them out here.

After the conference, Loriann drove out and we drove out to Colorado to look at properties. Well, we found "the one" and put an offer in right away. It was accepted and we close the beginning of April. Colorado, here we come!

It snowed while we were there, which was fun. I took these pictures at Loriann's aunt and uncle's where we stayed.

The drive through the Rockies was incredible, but I was so determined to drive as far as possible each day that I didn't take any time for sure!

Things are very busy now with prepping to move, going to Napa this weekend, a shoot with My Nerd Girl next weekend, then a wedding at the Ritz in Laguna the following weekend. I am posting a few blogs today to catch up.
